Belling the Cat

Spot the vole.

Took a walk up Edward German Drive and was dismayed to see not one but two cats sitting by water vole burrows. At least one of the cats had a bell round its neck, though. It's not an infallible deterrent, but it does help. Anyway, more encouragingly there were lots of runs and burrows and some feeding all the way along.
Two voles tonight: an adult (top) and probably that same juvenile as last time (bottom).
